About Minit-Tune & Brake

Calgary’s Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres have been family owned and operated for more than 30 years. Our dependable services are CAA approved and BBB accredited. Our parent company has an even longer history of reliable auto repairs and car servicing. We operate on honesty and value nothing higher than the trust of our clients. We want to provide quality service so that you always feel comfortable leaving your vehicle with us, and know that you are getting the best care possible. We use only the highest quality parts available, allowing us to offer one of the best warranties in Calgary; one year or 20,000km (whichever comes first) on both parts AND labor. 

There are automotive repair shops and there are maintenance shops; while Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres do perform repairs on all makes and models of vehicles, we are a car maintenance shop first and foremost. This means that if you maintain your vehicle with us, we will diligently assess all components of your vehicle and perform all required maintenance at the correct intervals, as per manufacturer specifications so that your vehicle is fully prepared for the road. Thus, your chances of having to deal with the inconvenience of getting your vehicle towed in to perform a repair are minimized.

We understand that getting your vehicle serviced/repaired can be a stressful and daunting task. Our objective is to make the process as easy and relaxing as possible for you so that all you have to worry about is dropping off your vehicle and picking it up once it’s ready. We even offer a courtesy shuttle if you need a ride while your vehicle is with us. Throughout your experience with us, we will maintain clear communication with you and do our best to appropriately explain any problems we diagnose so that you always remain updated and aware of your vehicle’s situation.

Today Minit-Tune & Brake has 18 convenient locations across BC and Alberta to serve you.

Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres offer comprehensive car care from people who have earned your community’s trust.
